Mitch McConnell’s message for protesters at his home: ‘I will not be intimidated’

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

In the wake of last weekend’s two mass shootings, leftist protesters converged on the Louisville home of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to shout profanities against him and his wife, threaten violence, and bully him into taking action to fulfill their progressive agenda.

But if the protesters thought their disruptive antics would intimidate McConnell into doing what they want, they’d better think again. McConnell declared Thursday that he “will not be intimidated.”

“I will not be intimidated”

McConnell’s message for the protesters outside his home came during a call-in interview with a local Kentucky radio show on WHAS.

“I have a word for everybody who’s been in the front yard, and everybody who’s trying to get in my space: I will not be intimidated by you people, not a chance,” McConnell said.

“Not a single thing you do is going to alter how I operate on behalf of my constituents and the country for whom I have a significant amount of responsibility,” he added.

Disruptive noise and threats

The protesters first arrived outside McConnell’s home on Monday and have returned for the past couple nights since then.

Aside from shouting profanities and making threats against McConnell and his wife — Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao — the protesters have been creating a racket all through the night with cowbells, pots and pans, other noisemakers, and even dragging a shovel across the street and sidewalk in McConnell’s neighborhood.

In response to a question about if he felt compelled or had been asked to move, the Republican leader joked about how the protesters’ shenanigans, while having no direct effect on him, might be impacting his neighbors by lowering the property value of homes in the neighborhood.

“I have plenty of security. I haven’t needed to abandon my house,” he said, and added in regard to the protesters, “Hopefully they’ll behave themselves. I’ve said to my neighbors, ‘It probably isn’t good for property values living next to me.'”

Fractured shoulder, Twitter account locked

The protesters descended upon McConnell’s home in order to pressure him to “do something” on the issue of gun control. They also harangued him over the border and immigration issues as well as LGBT rights.

Ironically, Twitter locked McConnell’s campaign account for violating its terms of service for posting a video of the protesters making explicit threats against him — video the protesters had filmed and first posted themselves without getting into any trouble. After McConnell’s campaign accused Twitter of political bias, the account was finally unlocked on Friday morning. See the video below (warning: contains profanity):

McConnell was at his Kentucky home due to Congress’s month-long August recess and is also recovering from a fractured shoulder suffered in a fall at his home on Sunday. He expects to return to work in Washington D.C. at some point in September.
